by a blueprint coming out from bernanke this week on a plan for credit tightening? >> now, you know, this is the usual thing, nicole, bernanke will come out and he'll have to be careful what he says. he has been saying we'll have an exit policy but not yet. exit policy means look at my finger. higher interest rates. it's like saying the market correctors. was it wrong before? the exit policy is when we're going to see higher interest rates in the united states and of course the markets right now don't want to hear about that. bernanke is saying when the time is appropriate will include interest rates because the markets will want to know when is the appropriate time. can you spell out what's going to happen? the problem is guess what? we're having low unemployment so what if we have low unemployment the month after that? will that be the appropriate signal? >> there we go. andrew freris to stay with us. we'll get you some headlines making news right now. meanwhile, around the world, in the united states, the head of the world's largest bond fund says 2010 will be a year of sovereign

at worldfocus.org. >>> in this country federal reserve chairman ben bernanke said today he's looking into weather goldman sachs and other wall street firms may have helped push greece toward financial ruin. the issue is is the use of those credit default swaps, th serve as an insurance against risk and let the banks gamble that greece might default on its debt. ultimately they make it more expensive for greece to borrow money. greece's debt crisis played out on the streets as well. thousands took part in a protest yesterd yesterday. such a default would be among the first of the 16 country that is use the euro as currency. questions are being raised about how the situation was allowed to get so out of control in the first place. for more on that, we are joined once again by a senior writer for bloomberg business week. >> hi martin. >> this is a little confusing, let's try to follow along. there have been reports of several american financial service companies, how they helped greece mask how bad the financial situation was in that country. how did that work? >> on a day-to-day level,
bernanke and the possibility of raising interest rates. or effectively raising interest rates. that is today's street poll. not long ago, this man had limited mobility. last month, this woman wasn't even able to get around inside of her own home. they chose mobility. and they chose the scooter store! if you or a loved one live with limited mobility call the scooter store! no other company will work harder to make you mobile or do more to guarantee your complete satisfaction. if we pre-qualify you for a new power chair or scooter and your claim isn't approved, the scooter store will give you your power chair or scooter free. that's our guarantee. they were so helpful and nice. they filed all the paperwork, and medicare and my insurance covered the cost. we can work directly with medicare or with your insurance company. we can even help with financing. if there's a way, we'll find it! so don't wait any longer, call the scooter store today. >>> as america slowly recovers from the recession many investors have been looking to china, the country's economy is in the middle of a huge
of weeks, barack obama has crossed a rubicon. he had a chance to get rid of ben bernanke and replace him with someone like john taylor. he had a chance to get rid of tim geithner. he didn't do that. >> okay, peter, it sounds like a series of things in your view. i have got leave it there. we have breaking news over at the breaking news desk. steve? >> thanks very much. we have talked to senator she y shelby's office. his office is telling us the senator shelby still believes that regulatory reform bill is still possible this year. they reveal there has been an area of agreement that we didn't know about that they agreed on the idea of a consolidated regulator. where the disagreement is over the issue of consumer protection. dodd wants consumer protection part of the agency to write its own rules. shelby said consumer protection rules must coordinate with safety and soundness. no agreement on resolution authority and other areas. dodd says there is an impasse that doesn't mean that regulatory reform is dead. shelby's office believes it is possible. >> tax issues, health care, still very
me, i'm chaled. >> and what are you expecting to hear from bernanke on capitol hill tomorrow? you say restraint is needed. why and when? >> well, you know, the reason i think that restraint is needed is because i think that he may be getting a little bit behind the curve. the reason i say that is a lot of the so-called leading indicators of inflation, my work, suggested inflation in 2010 is going to be higher than the consensus expectation. so the consensus expects inflation to be around 2%. i think it could be over 3% in 2010. and i think bernanke needs to start move towards restraint, in other words, start to move towards some of the excess liquidity driving this inflation. so i think sooner as opposed to later. i actually think that if he starts to move towards restraint wibt might lead to an increase in bank lending, which is sorely acting. but nevertheless, i think he needs to move towards restraint sooner than the consensus believes, not later. >> that's what i wanted to ask you about. we're getting comments in from the fed's bill dudley who says small banks are fuelling the pre
. and with dr. bernanke scheduled to speak tomorrow, our sense is that that trade will be relatively quiet here. a high volume area last week was around 1064 even. we'll probably bing bong back and forth on that trade waiting for dr. bernanke or for further developments in europe. >> what's your view, jamie, about today's trade and whether you believe in the bounce we are likely to get, at least at the open? >> well, i think the most encouraging part is that this rally is coming from european financials. you can see all those works up markedly on yesterday's trade. domestically, local ibs have been overwhelmed by this european crisis. unemployment was a great number on friday. it exceeded expectations. earnings continue to be strong. we seem to have been weighed down by euro. if that turn around and those financials continue to hold these gains, it could be very good things domestically. >> jamie, most of the guys you trade with trade according to technical analysis charts and yada yada. let me run this by you. the day before yesterday, which was a monday, right? yeah. did monday look like a sh
for ben bernanke and the federal reserve, that there is a very substantial penalty for early withdrawal. we're seeing china and india tighten, now europe withdrawing its liquidity facilities. the u.s. would do well to mind this lesson. if we start to syphon off some of the liquidity, there really could be hell to pay. what we're seeing, when you mention gold, the deflation trade is being put back on. the dollar is going up, gold is going down, oil is collapsing, commodities across the board have been very weak. equity markets are falling all at the same time while domestic rates drop. for anybody worried about inflation in united states, the dollar is going up, u.s. rates are going down and the u.s. on a relative basis is still the safest market in the world no matter what anybody sayless. but there is a danger if the fed doesn't heed the lessons of what's going on elsewhere in the worldtion we, too, could face some of the problems like europe, although our banks are in better shape than yours. >> which is why, rick santelli, the china trade, you want to buy anything that need, we saw t

concerns that the market has across the spectrum. and you've got bernanke talking about higher rates. fed funds are pricing in almost 100% probability that we have rates lower in march. if we start to see more rhetoric out of the fed with respect to what they're going to do with the rates, that is outside of market expectations right now currently. >> what are you telling people tow to do snt. >> right now, volt tilt is at a level to finance shorter purchases and hedges. given the uncertainty, i don't think it's fair to say that volatility is expensive on the front end. >> anthony, real quick, berna e bernanke's exit strategy speech yesterday, does it move up your sense of the timing for when the fed will ultimately tighten? >> it really didn't, steve. the federal reserve basically injected $1.5 trillion in the liquidity in the credit crisis. it would be irresponsibility of the fed to not outline a credit strategy. i think he made it very clear that he wanted to give us the thumb nails strategy of what this is going to be like. is he going to normalize the discount rate? yes. but remembe
bernanke getting ready to testify on capitol hill later this week. steve joins us with more on the fed's game plan. >> the news is not going to be that the fed will lay out an exit strategy. they have already done that. we have been reporting it for weeks and weeks despite what other media outlets might be saying. if there is going to be news, timing of the exit strategy or the sequencing as in what comes first. rate hike chicken. what am i talking about? fed work behind the scenes on a series of measures to withdraw all of that extraordinarily quiddity. interest on reserves. we told you it would be the new fed funds rate. thing that will matter more than when they come out. term deposits for bank. reverse repos overnights. ultimately the bigger question, do they sell assets? not that loud about it. here is the reason. the fed doesn't want to signal imminent change in the policy when it talks about developing the tools to reverse that policy. st. louis fed chairman says he believe it is fed can begin selling assets the second half of the year which would come before raising rates. sequ

's an interesting idea. bernanke yesterday mentioned that the spike in jobless claims might have been at least partly related to the weather. i would say there's a little more uncertainty than maybe mr. knapp suggests as to whether or not this is weather related or how much of a comedown we're getting from that fourth quarter gdp which was very strong and as you said revised up, erin, to 5.9% from 5.7%. it is interesting to look at the details and where the strength was to kind of figure out whether or not, how much of that is going to continue. what you see when you look at it is the consumer was pretty weak at one point, 7%, and nobody thinks that's going to be any stronger in this quarter. business spending was very strong. that's a wild card. that could continue. exports strong again and of course the big part of that not shown here are the inventories -- inventory numbers. this conference, though, is going to be about the fed policy and the fed's role put on here by the university of chicago's school of business. there are going to be no less than four members of the federal market commit
the federal reserve to take the lead on this. citing mr. bernanke does not want to step up and -- i think mr. bernanke, unfortunately, does not want to step up and take responsibility. i think the administration put a good deal of capital to work to make sure that he stayed on as chairman of the fed. but honestly, it would require presidential leadership at this point. we see encouraging signs, but also discouraging signs. the president said nice things about big bankers and their compensation just last week. you have to ask the white house where we are on this issue. host: simon johnson is the author of an upcoming book, "13 bankers." when will this come out? guest: when wilthe end of march. i do not think this problem is going to go away anytime soon. host: wyoming, republican line. caller: i would just like to say a few things and please do not cut us off because we do not get a chance to get in as many times as the democrats and the independent line. i'm a conservative woman of color. i notice every time on c-span and i get to be disappointed. and i will get to my question. i notice a ta

for the u.s. in 2 1/2 years at around 0.5%. and looking at what bernanke said this week, gave us a laundry list of ways to exit the strategy, basically, and he basically talked about, you know, the possibility of increasing interests on bank reserves. and while in basically contrast, the ecb is not going to do the exit strategy. it's going to stay in and maybe in too deep right now as it may need to provide some liquidity out of what happened from greece. so that will definitely give the yield luster for the u.s. dollar. >> so what target would you put on euro/dollar? >> still looking at 1.32% before the end of the quarter. any bounce, really, is going to be more of the corrective bounce, not more than 1.3950. >> i was wondering, what do you see the likelihood of a new and increased quantitative easing effort by the ecb, either in a direct like we've seen in the u.s. or uk and a continuation of the currency? >> look, even though they said they are not going to provide renewed 12-month loan facility, the ecb, this institution that has been seen as one of the first institutions to get out of
release the minutes of their meetings. mr. bernanke does testify regularly on capitol hill, explaining what he is doing. and why he is affecting monetary policy the way he is. some have suggested such as milton friedman once, that we could replace the federal reserve with a computer that would determine money supply and interest rates by a basic formula. perhaps that would be better than the usual way we have done in the past. i think the federal reserve policy, you know, can be subject to certain criticism. i'm not sure how it would work to eliminate the federal reserve, but i think there is legitimate disagreement on the way that they've had with the recession. and i think that disagreement is there. las. . 650 employees at the spa at the cost of $100,000 for three days for each employee. was a cost comparison done to justify such a cost? how was that chosen at the venue? what happened there? >> in that particular case there was a cost comparison and there were quotes from several vendors. one the challenges is finding a venue for that many people. it is the high cost. it is the annu
